Description

Using a recent Win32 build by Kirben

The SCI parser does not recognize pronouns.
SSCI on the other hand remembers the last noun used and you can refer to it by using pronouns
(words like "it, them, him, her" etc).

Here are a few examples:
- in PQ2 at the beginning, typing "look at glovebox", then "open it"
SCCI: the glove-box opens
ScummVM displays this message: "Please try a different way of saying that"

  • in KQ1 at the castle gates, typing "look at the guard", then "talk to him/them"
    SSCI:"These stone-faced guards must have been trained not to converse with anybody..." etc
    ScummVM: "Please try to rephrase that thought, Sir Graham."

  • in KQ4 at the beginning, typing "look at the flowers", then "take them".
    SSCI: "It would waste your precious time to stop and pick flowers."
    ScummVM: "Try that one again. I couldn't make much sense of it."
